If you decided to work off your Thanksgiving food coma with a movie this past weekend, you weren't alone. This weekend was another big one at the box office led by a surprising animated flick.

Say "aloha" to "Moana." The new Disney film that took the top spot at the Thanksgiving weekend box office with a gross of over $55 million.

"Moana" took home over $81 million when you factor in its full Thanksgiving weekend release. That's the second-biggest gross ever over the long weekend behind a film you might've heard of: "Frozen."

Yeah, OK, we get the picture. Let's move on to No. 2.

"Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" isn't on top of the box office totem pole anymore, but its creators are still *Rowling* in dough. 

"Fantastic Beasts" took home just over $45 million this past weekend, bringing its two-week domestic gross to over $156 million.

Coming in at No. 3 is the box office marvel known as "Doctor Strange," which raked in $13.3 million in its fourth week on the big screen. 

The Doctor's strong showing makes it the 10th movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to hit $200 million at the box office.

As for next week, Natalie Portman is Jackie O.
